Summary: This is a good game with great graphics. The combos in fights are harder than Tekkens and get this, if you want to counter, you have to push square and the same buttons that your opponent pushes. On DOA3 on XBOX they made the countering easier by just pushing 1 button.
Summary: DOA2 is a good fighting game for those of you who like Tekken 1-4 and DOA. This game has new levels and some new characters to play with. Although this game's main con is combos it won't take you very long to master them. Its ghapics are fine and it doesn't have blood and guts in it.
Summary: My kids wanted a Fighter. After playing the Tekken 3 Demo my daughter, fell in love with the genre. I bought DOA2 simply because it was the cheapest one I could find used for the PS2 (while Tekken 3 was on order). We were very pleasantly surprised.
Summary: DOA2 is the best game in the fighting genre for PS2. With unbelievable graphics, awesome moves and fighting styles, and varied characters, this game surpasses the rest. You can choose from over 6 modes, including sparring(practice)and versus modes. The graphics are awesome, period.
Summary: DOA Hardcore is one of the better fighting games on the PS2 but like all fighting games, it has it's draw backs. The graphics are excellent, almost perfect. No shady pseudo dimensional graphics that when you get too close, they become a flat surface.
Summary: This is a fun fighting game! Takes awhile to get use to the throwing your opponent and avoiding throws only to counter-throw, though. But that does help make the game more replayable. The graphics are GREAT! The story mode is [poor]!
Summary: This game is a great fighter. Look at interactive backgrounds, a fair number of different fighting styles, nice # of characters, easy to get the grasp of but hard to get good at. Beginers will like the ease at first and appreciate the difficulty of intentionally doing moves as they play on.
